July Artwalk

This month, Annie's is pleased to exhibit two artists. On our Artwalk wall, Portland artist Cathie Joy Young will display her beautifully rich paintings, while Seattle artist Barbara Dunshee's sculptural and functional ceramics will be featured in our front windows.

Barbara's porcelain sculptures runs the gamut of the whimisical to the enigmatic, with disembodied faces and crowned babies contributing to a highly original and inspired body of work. Also featured in our side window will be her brilliantly colored functional and decorative ceramic vessels.

Cathie Joy's interpretive visions of faces, figures, and animals are described as "...primal, atmospheric dreamscapes. (They) feel like directly transmitted dreams, almost like fairy tales or nursery rhymes, peaceful but discordant enough to be curious, to feel like inquiries or investigations of mystery." -Erica Steiner

Come enjoy the complementary techniques of these gifted Northwest artists!
